As another year draws to a close and as i reflect on 2015, i can’t help to think what an insane year this has been. The year 2015 has been a challenging year for me. It was one where i sacrificed a lot to reach my goals, a year that i gave my all in every project or task brought before me. It was a year where i got out of my comfort zone and fulfilled my life long dream of launching my earphone line –Gold Khromo by Urban Enzo. It was also the year that i decided to work on my next big personal project, something I’ve always wanted to do. I will tell you all about it when its done.
This year has been so busy that i didn’t get to travel as much as i would have liked. I was blessed enough to have surprised my parents with a trip to Cape Town in January 2015. I felt like they deserved a break, a chance to be spoiled without having to pay a cent. They have done so much for me throughout my life and for that i would be forever grateful. To my beautiful Mother, Gladys Dooms, you mean the world to me. There were times this year where i thought i would lose you, but because we serve a mighty God, he has kept you here with us. We have grown so much closer this year – you are everything to me. The respect and love i have for you is indescribable. Dad, i admire you, and i try to always be a great man like you. The love you have for mom, my siblings and i is out of this world. Thanks to my parents for being a part of my 2015. Thank God for allowing me the pleasure of spending another with you. Thanks to my siblings- Corlette, Alencia, Rudy and Samantha for being there. Love you all.
Every year for my birthday, i travel to an international destination to celebrate my birthday. For 2015, i spent my birthday in Paris and then Qatar in the United Arab Emirates. It was a liberating experience exploring Paris. I also did a trip to Barcelona in February.
I had a memorable year, so i would like to take this opportunity for a roll call of thanks..
First up it’s you, yes you, reading this. I hope that i have inspired, entertained and maybe even helped you in some way this year. Thanks for reading my blog and for following my story. Thanks for always coming back to read my posts, to watch my YouTube videos and for following @UrbanEnzo and @GoldKhromo on Twitter and Instagram. I appreciate you, you smart….. you’re loyal!
To my media friends and fellow bloggers – thank you! Thanks for allowing me into your circle and for supporting me. Thanks for numerous collaborations and for attending events. Most of you have become friends as some of you are really awesome people offline and online. Keep doing what you are doing and always remain humble. Social Media is a fickle thing – it creates a mirage at times but keep it together. Let’s keep on creating, let’s keep growing, let’s keep supporting each other in 2016.
A big shout out to my kick ass team. What an honour and privilege it has been to be a team member. I honestly have the greatest boss ever. Thanks Rella B. Thanks for pushing me and encouraging me to always give my best. Thank you for the freedom to create – to let my ideas come to life. You rock!
Thank you to my friends. You know who you are and for the new ones i made this year. Thanks for being there, supporting, having my back and showing love. To my best friend – Larnelle, homes lol, this year was a jump! We had fun, we have seen places and met new people. Thanks son.. 2016 is going to be insane for us. Way up to all of my friends!
Thank you to God for blessing me, keeping me alive and the ones close to me.
But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit. Jeremiah 17: 7-8
Have a great 2016 and Thank you 2015! #WhatATimeToBeAlive
